Step 2: Right-click on the System option.
Step 3: Click on the Add-ons option.

Before you start streaming on Kodi addons, you need to know how vulnerable you are. Kodi doesn’t hide your online activity. Whatever you stream on Kodi addons will be visible to your government, ISP, and they can often keep track of it all. If you’re caught watching copyrighted content, you might be at risk of a fine, jail time, or both.
That’s why it’s recommended to use a reliable VPN (like ExpressVPN) while streaming your favorite movies and shows on Kodi. ExpressVPN is a subscription-based service that hides your online activity from your government and ISP. It masks your real IP address and helps you bypass geoblocking restrictions. ExpressVPN also safeguards you from speed-throttling.
Here’s how you can set up ExpressVPN:
Setting up ExpressVPN on Firestick is pretty simple:
Step 1. Go to the ExpressVPN website.
Follow these steps to make your ExpressVPN account:
Step 2. Next thing you need to do is download ExpressVPN on your Firestick.
Go to your Firestick’s homepage. Select Find and Search.
Step 3. Type ExpressVPN and press enter.
Step 4. Select the ExpressVPN icon from the search results.
Start the download and wait until it’s complete.
Step 5. Once the download is complete, sign in to ExpressVPN by entering your login details (email and password)
Step 6. The only thing left to do now is to connect to a server location. You will see the connecting symbol on the screen. Click on it and let the VPN automatically connect you to a reliable server location.
Congratulations! You’ve successfully installed and connected to ExpressVPN.
Rising Tides is one of the best sports addons for Kodi. It has sections for live PPV events, football games, and other sports events. And the best thing about Rising Tides is that it works with both Kodi 18 and 19 Matrix (albeit with different URLs). What more can you ask for in a Kodi addon?
